NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today announced that eligible organisations across the region can now take advantage of the opportunity to apply for grants supporting 2018 NAIDOC Week activities.
Mr Marshall said that grants of up to $3,000 were available to grass roots organisations to run local events marking NAIDOC Week, the annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
“This is yet another great opportunity for local groups to secure some funds to run successful events in their community to celebrate Aboriginal culture and bring people together,” Mr Marshall said.
“NAIDOC Week is a unique opportunity for our whole community to come together and to recognise the culture, history and achievements of our First Australians and their contributions to our great country.”
Mr Marshall said he looked forward to seeing how communities across the region used the NAIDOC Week grants.
“I encourage local organisations across the Northern Tablelands to apply for grant funding to host events during this NAIDOC Week that celebrate the important place Aboriginal people play in our communities,” he said.
Grant applications are open and close on Friday, 20 April 2018.
